Cartographies of the Vanishing Now (FIBER Festival)
It sets out to capture the impact of the growing ecological instability on the way we organise and model our modern world, traces the forces behind environmental change and simultaneous shifts perspectives to move to brighter futures.
The first instance of Cartographies of the Vanishing Now is the five day laboratorium happening in Amsterdam in the week of September 9 to 13, 2019. A selection of makers and thinkers will set out to research and define a wide variety of subjects, experiment with environmental data, create concepts and prototypes for new works and collaboratively shape the future pathway of the project under the guidance of lab mentors and visiting guests. The lab will consist of lectures, masterclasses, micro-workshops and a field trip.
An international open call for participation was launched July 3, 2019 and is now closed
Cartographies of the Vanishing Now (COTVN) is a new research and development project initiated by FIBER festival, exploring the potential of sensory art and alternative cartographic methods to remap reality in the age of environmental collapse.
